Think dream home? Think South West

Ask people to imagine their dream home and they might tell you about roses around the door, a walk-in wardrobe or even a swimming pool. Everyone has their own idea of what makes the perfect property but two new surveys have actually quantified what the UK dream home really consists of. Winkworth wasn't surprised to learn that the most popular choice among Britons was a four-bedroom detached house in the South West of England. When it came to the age of their dream home, 73% of respondents wanted a house that was less than 100 years, with only 18% of those polled saying they'd like to live in a property more than a century old. A separate survey also concerned with the issue of the UK's dream home found that a detached farmhouse cottage would be the perfect property - with almost 80% of those questioned believing they could buy their dream home within the next five years. The good news is four-bedroom detached houses for sale in Devon, Dorset and Cornwall are plentiful. The South West offers a charming mix of rural villages, lively towns and cities, and a breathtaking coastline, presenting buyers with wonderful opportunities. From cosy farmhouse cottages through to architecturally-designed residences, Winkworth can match every buyer with their dream property. Here are three of our current favourite South West locations:- Poole, Dorset - four-bedroom houses for sale in Poole often come with waterside views and even private jetties and slipways, if you're into sailing. The Lilliput area is a short walk from Canford Cliffs and the marina, and gives buyers easy access to the spectacular sandy beaches from Bournemouth to Sandbanks. Exeter, Devon - the four-bedroom houses for sale in Exeter are simply stunning. Many are former farmhouses and are sold complete with land, outbuildings, stables and paddocks. Try searching in the villages of Thorverton, Bickleigh and Silverton. St Agnes, Cornwall - with beautiful countryside views and close proximity to the heritage coast, St Agnes and its surrounding villages are 'dream property' heaven. There's a good selection of four-bedroom houses for sale in St Agnes - with some amazing stone-built barn conversions up for grabs.
